The Taiwan Weather Thread 2018


#141

The dangers of cold front weather: lots of elderly and people with heart conditions can’t take it.


#142

Do you prefer one of these?


#143

Hell no. I almost became BBQ because of one of those!

My dream is a dual function AC or -dreams have no limit- a heated floor.


#144

These trees have no idea what is in store for them next week. They should have learned their lesson by now.


#145

Oh, pretty flowers.

A couple of years ago this date we had snow in Xindian… so Google tells me. So yes, expect cold and rain…


#146

Across the road from our place there are like 5 trees flowering and people line up to take pictures with their 'smart’phone.


#147

We have several cherry trees, real cherry trees in our area. Definetively worth a couple of pics.

Right now it is plum flowering season down South, gorgeous views.

Woke up at 3.30 for work ( -_-), went outside: Yilan is surrounded by clouds, but right in top of us the sky is so clear that I could see the milky way reflected on some rice fields. I hope Wednesday the sky will look like today, there’s some dodgy moon thing going on.

On a side note: the homeless dogs who live in the bus station crossed the road while I was around there. One of them came to me waving his tail with a:" do you have a cookie? 8( " face.

I have never seen the Milky Way in Taiwan. In the old country, it is a nightly occurrence.


#150

On the mountains it’s easy to see it. From my balcony I think I see it on average 3 or 4 times a year, but I dont check everyday. I live in an area with low light pollution, so once the clouds clear up I get some nice night skies.


#151

Yes, the Milky Way is visible if you can stay away from the city lights

And this Wednesday evening, around 9:30 PM

there will be …

Hope the skies will be clear


#152

It’s an eclipse during which we can see the moon. A fake eclipse. Basically we’re being scammed, gg.

Wtf is this weather on the west coast, it’s trash.


#153

true… one has to get away from all major cities and towns in Taiwan to see the galaxy.
I remember those clear nights in Li-Shan (Taichung) when the road over to Taroko Gorge was open many, many, many moons ago.


#154

Here, I’ll help you

#155

Last time I saw those was in Tianmu.


#156

Was it at that little shop next to the Texas chicken or bbq shop near the American school?


#157

Coldest/gloomiest week of the winter coming up?


#158

That’s cheered me up.:grinning:


#159

Yep. Heading up to CNY. Normal.

Next weekend it is forecats to be 8 degrees up North. Now, if we now have a Real Feel of 7 while the thermometer says 12, how cold will we feel then?

I have a big problem as I have a new kitten -the tar covered one, now practically clean. But he lost most of his fur. He is wearing clothing but he is in a separate room by himself and it is hard to keep him warm -I do not leave the heater on while I am at work. Got him a heating pad and I left it unplugged but hot in his crate. He already has a cold and i do not want him to get worse in this weather.

Hate it, hate all the CNY’s I went through over the years I’m in Taiwan, never had the chance skipping it and leaving the island for warmer pastures.
